which is also expected to make Eee mobile phones anytime in the future, last
week introduced another Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional smartphone - the ASUS
P565 that boasts an 800 MHz processor, which makes - at the time of this
announcement - the device the fastest smartphone in the world. Sporting triband
GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 900/1800/1900 MHz and singleband HSDPA (3.6 Mbps) at 2100 MHz,
the P565 also features WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. Rounding off its
impressive feature-set the device features a 2.8" VGA touchscreen and a 3
megapixel autofocus main camera, delivering an unprecedented degree of clarity
that does wonders for both personal photographs and spreadsheets.
Featuring ASUS' latest touch-driven user interface - Glide - the stylish,
leather-accented P565 delivers graphics and system performance beyond anything
else on the market at present. This enables the P565 to glide through
resource-intensive tasks effortlessly and to handle heavy multitasking
exceptionally well - making it ideal for businesspeople who demand
uncompromising performance and maximum speed from their productivity tools.
The ASUS P565 is geared toward the business community. The coupling of an 800
MHz processor and Glide - an innovative touch-responsive user interface
exclusive to select ASUS PDA phones - makes for a powerful,
productivity-boosting combination. The fast processor renders the P565
particularly amenable to multitasking, while Glide enables users to switch
between tasks rapidly with their fingertips. The P565 also comes with a potent
suite of business-oriented features and software, including push E-Mail,
business card recognition and Microsoft Office Mobile. Other useful applications
such as Anytime Launcher and Multi-Home enable users to view their calendars,
the times of local and visiting cities, weather reports, online news and much
more - all with an intuitive tap, slide or flick of their fingers.
The ASUS P565 is designed to leave a deep and lasting impression. Its battery
lid is lined with black synthetic leather, commanding instant respect and
attention. The leather contrasts nicely with the P565's modern, high-gloss face,
and lends the phone a natural tactility and evocative appeal that elevates it
far above other phones on the market.
ASUS' Glide is a revolutionary touch-responsive user interface that enables
users to perform a variety of navigational actions - such as selecting, zooming,
scrolling and flipping - easily through simple flicks of their fingers.
Incorporated into Glide are also applications that enable users to access a wide
range of functions such as looking up the latest news, checking the weather
forecast, viewing photo slideshows and listening to music within a few finger
taps. These applications, dubbed Multi-Home, Anytime Launcher, EziPhoto, and
EziMusic, give the expression "the world at your fingertips" a whole new
ASUS hasn't unveiled any information yet where and when the ASUS P565 will be
